  1. Make it easy to add people to you Teams Contacts. Better yet, let users import contacts from outlook.

    Make it easy to add people to you Teams Contacts. Better yet, let users import contacts from outlook.

    As it stands, there is virtually no way to accomplish this and the global lookup is limited to 25 people.

  4. Show all participants on the screen

    I would like to be able to see all meeting participants on my screen, rather than just the 3 who have most recently spoken.

  6. Limit SharePoint access for guest accounts

    A guest account added in Teams gets added to the 'Member' security group for the underlying SharePoint site. The 'Member' security group in SharePoint has Edit permissions by default.

    A guest using the 'Open in SharePoint' option in Teams can therefore make changes to the SharePoint site. They can add lists/libraries, delete lists/libraries, delete site pages, edit the home page. The guest account should be more limited than that... maybe just Contribute access to the 'Documents' library which contains the files stored in each channel.

  7. Chat option sorted by status

    Please allow chat to be organized by status how Skype can be. I need to see who is available on my team to coordinate services, see staff coverage, and for emergencies.

  12. GCC: Configure Meeting options when scheduling meeting

    Currently, you have to schedule a meeting and send out the invitations before you can configure the meeting options for Teams functions like "who can present". Beyond extra time required for meeting organizers to go back into meeting they just scheduled to configure it, this design prevents meetings created on a shared calendar from being edited at all, effectively blocking anyone from presenting.

    Please enable the meeting options to be configured when you are adding attendees.

  15. Mute a participant only for me

    If several participants from an office take part in the same conference on their own laptops, problems always arise, as there is always very annoying feedback and echoes. Is it not possible to set the program so that I can mute a participant just for me? If you mute this participant, he is also muted for all other participants. Then a conference in the same room with several team members would be possible. This means that one person always has to sit alone in the office.

  16. Meeting Minutes for Chat

    Now that we’re having more and more meetings in Teams Chat, we’re finding a great fringe benefit: We literally get minutes of those chats for free. We can cut down on having the same conversations multiple times with multiple people just by sharing those minutes. However, copying and pasting is currently finickity, so my idea is to add a feature to support this directly.


    1. Click a button at the start of chat which says “Minute meeting.” When participants enter that chat, they see a banner which says “This meeting is being minuted and will be shared.” A second “Copy Minutes…

  18. potential ADA/508 violation: emoji animations lack the ability to be disabled, hidden, paused or stopped

    In SfB there was an option to toggle off Emoji animations.

    There is no such feature for the end-user in Teams, nor to stop/pause an emoji's animation cycle.

    This is a potential accessibility violation, as per https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG21/Understanding/pause-stop-hide.html

  20. Number of Options increased in Forms

    I would like to have the number of Options increased in Forms.
    Our ministry of Education collect data on over 1000 schools and having this increase to 1000 or even to 200.
    This would be helpful in our collection of data Thank you.
